Lord Grey de Warke, Speaker.
The Messengers sent to the House of Commons on Saturday last return with this Answer from them:
Answer from the H. C.
That they agree to send Commitees to the Lord General, and the Common Council of London; and do also agree to the Thanksgiving; and do agree to give their Committee that go to the Common Council the same Power as their Lordships have done.
Message to them, about the Committee's going to the Common Council; and for Committees to be present at the exercising of the Trained Bands.
Upon Information to this House, "That the Committee did not go to the Common Council on Saturday last, by reason a Common Council could not be called in so short a Time:" Therefore it was moved, "To send to the House of Commons, to desire that their Committees may go this Afternoon, with the Lords Committees, to the Common Council in London:" And it was further moved, "That some Lords and Commons might be present To-morrow in Finsbury Feilds, to countenance the general Training of the City Forces there; and, for this Purpose, to send to the House of Commons, to desire that some of their Members may be there."
And accordingly a Message was presently sent to the House of Commons, by Sir Edward Leech and Dr. Aylett:
To (fn. 1) desire their Concurrence in the aforesaid Particulars.
Walker sent for, for printing a Book reflecting on Ld. Say & Seal.
This House being informed, "That Mr. Clement Walker hath lately printed a scandalous Book, wherein the Honour of the Lord Viscount Say & Seale is concerned:" It is Ordered, That the said Mr. Clement Walker (fn. 2) be sent for, to appear before this House forthwith, to give an Account of the said Book.

Ordered, That George Ulrick, Serjeant Major to Dulbeir, Quarter-master General to the General's Army, shall be kept in safe Custody of the Gentleman Usher attending this House, until the Pleasure of this House be further known, for coming from his Charge in the Army, and making false Reports of the Success of the Lord General's Army.
